SOCOM headset officially revealed

PS3 Fanboy: "The retail version of SOCOM Confrontation will include a Blu-ray headset. However, expect something much classier than the one included in the Warhawk bundle so long ago. This one is made specifically with gaming in mind -- and as such, earns the official PlayStation branding. The headset, which will also be available seperately from the game, is designed for long use and even includes a much-needed Mute button, a feature uncommon to most Bluetooth headsets. The device will also include a USB cradle, so that it can be charged via the PS3."

It says "Blu-ray headset", but I think they meant Bluetooth.

Yes, I was tired of the Warhawk headset I cant to pick this up.

hack64643701d ago

I will definitely be picking this up. I lost my old headset and I need a new one badly.

znu3701d ago

definatly need a new one built with comfort in mind but warhawks mic also had a mute button, just click the button used to put it on/off and it will beep, it takes about 2-3 seconds to register it but it can

i want a quick mute option like the 360's where i just click and instantly off, is there any mic like that for ps3 (i dont care about wires)

The Phantom Agree3701d ago

I might pick one up

agrees and bubbles via bluetooth

I'm moving up baby!

ChampIDC3701d ago

Looks like a nice headset. I wish 360 had nice headsets like that.

deeznuts3701d ago

Yeah but what the hell is a Blu-ray headset. Do you mean Bluetooth?

Violater3701d ago

Am I the only one who realizes how uncomfortable the part that sticks into your ear is going to be?

Ghoul3701d ago

MikeGdaGod3701d ago

So you are one of the noobs with all the background noise. Please buy this. :)

The Phantom Agree3701d ago

ChampIDC3701d ago

Ghoul3701d ago

playstation eye voice SUCKS dude, your spamming all your teammates with noise of your room friends family and whatnot, please buy a headset ;D

shine13963701d ago

erm really?
I played more then a few games with friends who I know for sure use ps eye, like say for burnout paradise and I've not had that problem...I've got both but I prefer headset...oh and just so you know I really don't like the background noise either...but I think it's definitely think its someone with the wrong settings...

MisfitSmurf3700d ago

Wildarmsjecht3701d ago

in the 1up preview they say the headset can be charged while in use.

hack64643701d ago

The bluetooth I had was so old it ran on a battery.

ChampIDC3701d ago

Yeah, I'm usually a fan of wired headsets myself, but this one at least has the advantage of being chargeable. It would suck if it used batteries.

Le-mo3701d ago

I'll be picking up the bundle then.

PoSTedUP3701d ago

wired headsets break too often. i had like 8 for the ps2 and 2 for the ps3- thats like 300$ on mics yo. blue tooth is more reliable and more efficient. im always bull sh*tting with my friends so im always walking around the house with it. planitronics 220 explorer, is a good cheap blue tooth, good quality, reliable, got good reviews, i would suggest it. but i would also suggest the socom headset knowing that its got the technology thats in the EYE toy.

ChampIDC3701d ago

The only wired headsets I ever have break are the ones that I run over the wire with my computer chair too much XD

PoSTedUP3701d ago

well.. dont buy the socom wired hedsets cause they break for no reason and too often.
